Catera Park and Cody Tanaka win 2019 BC Mixed Doubles Curling Championship

Two of last season’s BC Mixed champions, Catera Park and Cody Tanaka, will be representing BC at a national competition once again after winning the 2019 BC Mixed Doubles Curling Championship on Sunday at Abbotsford Curling Club.

Sixteen teams competed for the 2019 BC Mixed Doubles title, with just four teams moving on to the playoffs after round robin play. Kamloops’ Samantha Fisher and Jared Kolomaya and Victoria’s Carley Sandwith and Cameron de Jong finished at the top of their respective pools to earn berths into the playoffs.

Tunnel Town and Victoria’s Park and Tanaka finished second in Pool B after Sandwith and de Jong to also progress to the playoffs. Royal City’s Shannon Ward and Robbie Gallaugher were determined as the last team through to the playoffs after winning a tiebreaker series between four teams tied for second place in Pool A.

Fisher and Kolomaya won their first playoff game against Sandwith and de Jong by a score of 9-4 to remain undefeated in Abbotsford going into the final game. Park and Tanaka won their first playoff game 9-3 over Ward and Gallaugher before going on to beat Sandwith and de Jong 10-6 to secure their spot in the final.

The final game was tight, with scores of 2-2 after three ends and 4-4 after six ends. While Fisher and Kolomaya took a 5-4 lead in the seventh end, Park and Tanaka secured a 6-5 win with two points in the eighth.

Park and Tanaka will now go on to represent BC at the 2019 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, which will take place from March 19 to 24 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. More information can be found at https://www.curling.ca/2019mixeddoubles/
